The scientific process (and, to some extent, historical research done well) are humanity's only serious attempts to escape this vulnerability by painstakingly ensuring that the narrative matches the system in every possible detail. 2/

Isn't this dissonance characteristic of any domain where humans layer a narrative over a system? e.g. mythological and religious narratives over actual nature, advertising narratives over the actual economic system, political narratives over the actual social system... 1/

it works because 1. you mostly don't need it at all, 2. all actions you perform in the hypercard UI generate hypertalk "under the hood" which you can then tweak instead of writing from scratch, 3. when you copy & paste objects from other people's stacks, the code comes with them

"web browser" is exactly akin to "hypercard player", which is what killed hypercard

(FWIW, AK tends to implicate TBL more than I think is fair. TBL's WWW was WYSIWYG-editable. Others made "the browser".)

(jaynes did do a lot of really interesting physics work as well, especially his push for semiclassical ("neoclassical") theories, e.g. )
